artec3 carries out projects through 3 departments: lighting design, lab and lights.
We have arranged our works in the following categories to guide you on a transversal tour through the most relevant projects of artec3.
artec3 lighting design is dedicated to developing high-quality architectural lighting projects through close, proactive relationships with the design teams and clients. Shaping light, we create innovative lighting designs that enhance the architecture and its contents, while achieving the program and sustainable goals.
Take a look to our most relevant projects.
Our lights emerge from the experience developed in our lighting designs projects and the study of the function and emotion of the light interacting with space and people. artec3 Studio, by merging research, technology and taking care of details, has developed new concepts of light. Our designs are produced by recognized manufacturers and have been internationally awarded.
Enjoy a selection of our luminaires designs and bespoke lights.
The lab department has explored the most interactive, social, artistic and exciting aspects of the light as a channel to express intangible contents. This enables us to shape our perception and cognition when being part of experiences, interacting with artworks, or creating identities through light. The artec3 lab, in continuous artistic experimentation with light, has evolved to summalab. Find more about it.
General MitreBarcelona, Spain 2013
The lighting design of the house in General Mitre is based on the composition of four elements in the interior space. On one hand, there are suspended plates that make up the false ceiling, highlighting the existing structure and defining and configuring a scope. It’s an element that reinforces the spatiality of the house.
On the other, there are the exempt elements (organic forms) freely located in space. They are unique elements that define the way to circulate and generate different spatial relationships. Their materiality, geometry and nature are differentiated from the rest by their language, singular form and texture of the material. Also, the staircase, a double height space that connects and links both spaces, formally, spatially and visually, as well as being part of the lobby space for access to housing. This must be considered as a space of special importance.
Finally, the outdoor spaces (planters and pool), terraces, one of which includes a pool, environmentally and functionally linked to the interior, through its elements and visuals from and to the interior.
